Are your kids Rainbow Loom crazy? My oldest got a Rainbow Loom last year for Christmas and has been a bracelet making machine ever since!
Once my 5 year old hit kindergarten he wanted a Rainbow Loom too. His sister let him practice on hers, but that left only one for everyone to use. Instead of sitting around doing nothing they figured out how to make bracelets without the loom and only their hands.
The only supplies you need to make Rainbow Loom bracelets by hand are a bag of the little bands they sell everywhere with some C clips inside. You can purchase them at a craft or toy store for just a couple dollars.
We thought the easiest way to show you how to make the bracelets by hand was with a video so here you go!

Making Rainbow Loom bracelets is a great way for kids to get crafty after school! There were some cute crafts for kids linked up to the After School linky last week too. My kids would love to make the Pom Pom Hedgehog or the Beaded Napkin Rings.
If you are a blogger we would love to have you link up your after school posts for kindergartners and up–crafts, activities, playtime and any adventures that you are doing to enrich your children’s lives after their day at school, homeschool or on the weekend!
